This book is from James's POV which gives us a different insight from book 1, and is mainly from a few chapters before the end of book 1 (it's not a conflation of their story past their HEA).
This book gives us a lot of details about the investigation and answers all our questions left over from book 1 about what happened with the federal case. Where this was all great, I really did want more of James and Rose's love story. It's almost never that I say a book hasn't got enough love or intimacy scenes in it but I couldn't help but think this by 70% in.
However this book was still really good and I'm glad I read it- it's just that book 1 spoilt me for such a good read.
I loved that this wasn't just a match up of Rose's story, in fact it doesn't even start until 3 quarters of the way through her story.
The new part of the story, after where Rose's book finished, is where the pace picks up and once again James and Rose are back in that dark world all over again.
Not as much sex in this one but what there is is hot!
This was a great way to get James and Rose to their HEA.
If you haven't yet read Irrevocable, but plan to, then you should probably not read this review as it will contain spoilers for that book. However, I'm not sure if you really must read Irrevocable before reading Bend, Don't Break. I know I hadn't read it, but I still enjoyed this book a great deal. It did not take me long to figure out what happened in the first book.
This book takes up shortly after the ending of the first book. James, the undercover cop who went by the name Kirk, is recovering from a bullet wound he suffered in the first book. His police superiors are demanding that he pass a doctor's psychological exam before he can return to his former life. But all James wants is to reconnect with Rose (aka Silver), the woman he has fallen in love with. The woman he was forced to abuse in the first book in order to not jeopardize his false identity.
Has the sex slave network really been destroyed? Was the real head of the slavery organization killed, or was that an imposter? Can James forget the terrible things he had to do to maintain his cover? Can he forgive himself? Can Rose forgive him? Can James and Rose have a real happily ever after, or is it too late? Will Silver\Rose still want anything to do with him now that she is a free woman?
These questions and more are answered in this exciting volume.
~Please read IRREVOCABLE before reading BEND DON'T BREAK~
'My story should have ended, but one woman kept standing in the way of that. The only way I could have her was to find a way to put the darkness to rest'
I was ecstatic to find out that there was to be another story to follow IRREVOCABLE, I was even further excited by the fact that this book was to be from James' aka 'kirks' POV.
This instalment takes off straight from the end of IRREVOCABLE, and focuses on the whys and how James found himself infiltrating a sex trafficking/slavery retreat. where he climbed the proverbial ladder of rank for a year, becoming a pinnacle member of the group.
Despite this story coming from an entirely different POV, you do however need to quickly understand that this one is an entirely different take on what truly happened inside those retreat walls.
I did struggle at first with separating James from Kirk, as you do tend to tar him with what he did to Rose in book one. I found it difficult to understand how their relationship could work outside of the walls, after he'd beaten her, raped her and demoralised her in lots of different ways. Yet, you are supposed to think 'but, it wasn't really him doing those things'.
Learning more about James, you come to realise how deeply damaged he has become during his time there. You start to understand that in order for him to do what he did, he lost a lot of himself a long the way, and you see the inner turmoil he goes through to try to separate himself from the monster he'd become.Read more ›
